Medical Supply Drone Delivery

Drone platform provider Matternet launched a new trial program with UPS in 2019 to deliver medical supplies—documents, blood samples, and other items—via a secure drone carrier. After a successful run, the two companies will provide the service to medical centers in the U.S. In 2020, Jacobs Medical Center and the Moores Cancer Center, which are located about a mile away from each other in California, will use secure drone delivery to move samples, documents and supplies. The flight will take a few minutes and will be monitored by a team of remote operators. Previously, UPS had tested a medical supply drone to deliver blood to remote areas of Rwanda.
